SilverStone Temjin TJ08-E Evolution

Way back in 2006 I tested out the SilverStone TJ08, which ended up being a very nice compact enclosure and right on-par with SilverStone's other beautiful Temjin cases. More than a half-decade has passed and now SilverStone is out with the TJ08-E, which evolves the chassis by providing improved cooling performance and other minor refinements.

SilverStone Raven RV03

It's that time of the summer again to look at another SilverStone chassis. This time up for review is the SilverStone Raven RV03, which is the successor to the previously reviewed Raven RV01 and Raven RV02. The third-generation Raven carries a lower introductory retail price, improved cooling over the RV02, greater storage capabilities, and support for fitting an SSI EEB Extended ATX motherboard.

SilverStone Fortress FT03

Back in January at the Consumer Electronics Show one of the most interesting and innovative products I came across was not one of the many tablets or 3D monitors on display, but was actually a computer case. SilverStone Technology has been producing computer enclosures for years, yet they seem to always drive a new level of innovation into their products, and is why they're one of the few enclosure manufacturers to be featured on Phoronix. After being fascinated by their small form factor Sugo enclosures in the past, they introduced a SFF Fortress enclosure, which is easily one of the most unique micro-ATX enclosures.

SilverStone Milo ML03 HTPC

With all attention this week being turned to finishing up Phoronix Test Suite 3.0-Iveland and OpenBenchmarking.org for its launch tomorrow during the Southern California Linux Expo, there is no major Linux article in the queue for today, but we are looking at what SilverStone describes as "the entry-level HTPC benchmark." This company that's very well known for their high-end enclosures is now dabbling with a HTPC enclosure that will not set you over your budget on a Home Theater PC build. This review also includes a look at the Strider Essential 400W (SST-ST40F-ES) power supply.

SilverStone Precision PS05B

Most people would agree that SilverStone cases are great. In fact, many of our most favorite computer cases over the past five years have come from SilverStone Technology, including the very wonderful Temjin TJ10, the incredibly small Sugo, Raven RV02, and most recently the Fortress FT02, among others. The only issue that most computer enthusiasts and system builders gripe with regarding SilverStone enclosures is their price-tag, which usually don't come cheap. For example, the TJ10 that has been on the market now for some three years still sells for nearly $300 USD. While those cases are often worth the price, one of the newest ATX cases from this seven-year-old manufacturer sells for just $50 USD, so we decided to check it out. In this review, we are exploring the SilverStone Precision PS05B.

Lian Li PC-T60 ATX Test Bench

When testing out new hardware at Phoronix the systems are often running in an open environment atop a table rather than nestled away within an ATX case. While cases like the Raven RV02 and Fortress FT02 are wonderful to work with and use, when routinely swapping out hardware whether it's graphics cards or motherboards, it can be time consuming having to open up the chassis each time, remove any screws, pull out the existing hardware, and then install the new hardware. Running the hardware simply off its own cardboard box is often the quickest and most efficient path, but each system can occupy a lot of table space and lead to a rather cluttered work area. Fortunately, Lian Li has introduced a new ATX test bench called the PC-T60 that is designed for those enthusiasts or professionals that are frequently swapping out PC hardware.

SilverStone Fortress FT02

Back in November we reviewed the SilverStone Raven RV02 and found it to be an amazing computer case. It finally was superior to the Temjin TJ10 that was a favorite for years, but now SilverStone has pushed the limits of their designs and innovation even further. We now have our hands on the SilverStone Fortress FT02, which does inherit some traits from the Raven chassis, but it is simply one amazing enclosure. The Fortress FT02 may cost more than $200 USD, but read on to learn more about this exceptionally designed ATX / SSI CEB chassis.

SilverStone Grandia GD04

While we have a passion for Linux benchmarking, drivers, and delivering all sorts of performance metrics on Phoronix, once in a while it's enjoyable taking a break from that usual spin to look at other hardware components. In particular, checking out the latest computer cases from SilverStone Technology is usually the preferred choice. SilverStone has been around for seven years now yet they continue putting out some of the best and most innovative products on the market, with cases, power supplies, coolers, and other products. Their computer cases are among the best and the Temjin TJ10 and Raven RV02 have been personal favorites but they have dozens of other enclosures that range from low-profile SFF boxes to large towers. Back in October the Grandia GD03 was reviewed, but SilverStone has since sent out the Grandia GD04 to be tested, which is the focus of today's review.

SilverStone Raven RV02

Earlier this year we reviewed the SilverStone Raven RV01 and loved this high-end computer chassis. We did not think it was quite superior to the SilverStone Temjin TJ10 that has been our favorite for years, but now SilverStone is out with the Raven RV02. Are there enough improvements in the RV02 to see if it can finally surpass the Temjin TJ10 as our favorite? Actually, yes.

SilverStone Grandia GD03

SilverStone is one of the brands we enjoy testing for computer cases as they always seem to drive innovations into their products from the Sugo to the Raven to their very impressive Temjin series. One of the SilverStone product lines that we had not reviewed up to this point was the Grandia series of HTPC enclosures, but that changed when we tested out the SilverStone Grandia GD03. The GD03 is an ATX enclosure that integrates dual hot-swappable HDD bays, an aluminum front panel, and a design to deliver quite yet cool performance.
